Outraged Cyclists Re-Paint Removed Bike Lane, Guerilla Style

I was lurking around my favorite News website and came across this article I found pretty intruiging. Local Cyclists in Brooklyn, NY are pretty upset about the city removing bike lanes from certain areas of town. They are going out and doing something about it. It may not be the "right" way in some peoples minds but it sure is getting a point across. They are going out and re-painting the bike lanes that were taken out by the city. Check it out.

The Only Thing Missing is "V for Vendetta" Masks
A few sources are reporting that men were arrested yesterday for trying to re-paint a bike lane on a 14-block stretch on Bedford avenue in Brooklyn. The bike lane was recently removed by the city because of complaints by some local groups (the usual stuff about having fewer parkings and "hurting local businesses"). The unknown men made a video (see below) of them doing their guerilla bike safety civil disobedience and we got our hands on it.

Here's a photo of the removal of the bike lane last week, taken by Elizabeth Press.
